Random Small Kindness In Transit

Ashley from A Beautiful Struggle came across a randomly kind passenger recently.

Transportation in San Francisco brings out the most interesting people you will ever see. Honestly, I’ve seen some really odd things on the Muni train that I just can’t unsee. Anyway, this last Saturday my wonderful boyfriend and I were on Muni coming back from downtown SF to my apartment near SF State. I sat down near an old, man wearing a checkered sweater with a black cap and a large mustache. He looked at me with such a gaze that I will never forget and said: “Miss, you are a very beautiful lady. Please keep smiling, doing what you do and never forget that. You are very beautiful and never let anyone tell you different. This world needs someone like you.”
By far one of the sweetest things anyone has ever said to me. I truly will not forget this.
